Abstract

The influence of intracavity second harmonic generation on the mode competition in a double-mode diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser is studied theoretically and experimentally. Various configurations of the optical cavity with II-type phase-matching frequency-doubling crystals are considered. The conditions of steady-state lasing and of lasing with a small level of amplitude pulsation in the output laser beam are determined.
